OSCAR WEGNER was light-years ahead of the tennis industry when he was coaching open stance, stalking the ball in front, hitting up and across, lifting the body, heavy topspin and more at Spain's Tennis Federation School in Barcelona in 1973 and in Florianopolis, Brazil in the 1980's. OSCAR published his first book, “Tennis in 2 Hours" in 1989, which immediately became popular with coaches in Eastern Europe, from Moscow to Belgrade.
OSCAR'S innovative teachings received further exposure for 4 years on "THE NEW TENNIS MAGAZINE" TV show in the early 1990's, leading Richard Williams to test these tenets with his daughters, future world champions Venus and Serena.
Meanwhile, Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten, who had started with these techniques as a 5 year old, became world champion in the year 2000 and three-time French Open winner. From 1997 through 1999 ESPN International promoted OSCAR'S 40 revolutionary "PLAY LIKE THE PROS" tips in English and Spanish to their entire network of over 150 countries, leading to more successes around the world, receiving, in two and a half years of daily exposure, more than 10 billion impressions. Furthermore, OSCAR'S far reaching technical commentary on ESPN Latin America for 6 years charted a new course in tennis for that continent.
In the 2,000s Oscar published more revolutionary books and DVDs, culminating with the "TENNIS INTO THE FUTURE" DVD Series, published in 2010. Today Oscar continues to share his latest insights into modern tennis with blog articles and video tips, and his most recent online book "Play Like The Pros". He also teaches players and coaches upon request.
